What to Expect
ACGME Program ID : 3304821029
Applications are accepted on a rolling basis though we encourage you to apply as early as possible. Email invitations to interview will be sent out approximately two weeks from the ERAS opening date for programs. Our interview season typically runs from August to November preceding the appointment year. Email regrets that we are unable to offer an interview will be sent out by end of October.
If you are selected for an interview, you will be invited to schedule a date and you will have the option to change it anytime up to two weeks prior. If there are particular faculty whom you would like to meet, we encourage you to specify this to our coordinator in advance. We are always eager to make your interview experience as pleasant and informative as possible.
Our program's values align directly with the 2022 AAMC and APPD/COPS/AMSPDC national guidelines for appointment year 2023. Therefore, we will conduct all of our interviews virtually to ensure the health and safety of our applicants as well as to maintain equity among applicants regardless of their geographic location. Throughout the pandemic, our priority has been and remains the safety of our fellows. Learn about the BCM response to COVID-19.
